From the moment that we walk into this rental it felt like home. The owners are very friendly and always ready to assist with anything that we might need. The house smelled clean and was clean. The location was great. You walk out the back door and on to the back deck for a wonder view of the river and then down the stairs from the deck and your at the river. We were just a couple of minutes from the store to pick up all our things we needed to cook. We were about 20 minutes from Cades Cove and that is a must see. We will return again.

We just returned from a week stay in this beautiful house. Everything we needed was provided for by the thoughtful owner. It was such a pleasure to return "home" after a day in the park. The house is welcoming, clean, beautifully decorated an SMELLED GREAT! Thank you Donna for making our trip wonderful.

We were visiting from Australia for 10 nights with our family of 5 and discovered this gem via an internet search and I am glad we did. Eight years ago we lived pretty close by and so were visiting friends as well as enjoying the tourist attractions of the Smoky mountains. This was a much superior option than a hotel.

Communications with Donna were great in setting up the stay and when we arrived found the house sparkling clean and all as described with many extra little touches such as some necessities in the refrigerator and snacks on the bench.

My only concern during the stay were that the beds were too comfortable so we struggled to get everyone out of bed and on the road in the mornings.

When I booked I had visions of tubing in the river but the weather was too cool. However time proved too short anyway catching up with old friends in Maryville, outlet shopping in Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, mountain biking around Townsend (bikes at the house) and biking the Virginia Creeper Trail (2 hour drive away but highly recommended).

I will not hesitate in forwarding details to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

What a fabulous trip this was for me. The property is one I have always viewed on our trips to Townsend; never dreaming I would one day stay here. It is quaint, charming, old south. The river just a few steps away and down is something that draws us to this area. We were unable to play in the river this trip because the water was too high and now conducive to small children at this area at this time. Thank God for all the rain to fill the rivers again. Old soughern charm in the decor-makes you think of Grandmas house. The biscuits and apple preserves are a great touch for the hungry travellers. Nice yard for the kids to play and throw the baseball around. Comfortable front porch to sit on and watch the day passing by. Feels like home. Shaded road at back was great for the morning and evening strolls. They even thought of washing detergent for us. Owners called to make sure all was going well for us and offered good advice on area attractions. Wonderful vacation spot. Will definitely visit again and recommend to friends. Not a place for persons with knee problems since all bedrooms are up narrow stairs and bathrooms are downstairs.

We stayed here for a week and everything was wonderful! It is individually owned so it's not like dealing with a rental company. The house is right on the river with steps leading down. It is a great fishing and tubing spot. There are stores near-by which you can actually walk to. The lady and her mother who rent the home are so sweet! We arrived to biscuits in the fridge and they brought by a pie during our stay. They made us feel right at home! Wonderful experience we will be staying here again!!!
